Preserving the site of Sir Thomas Erpingham’s medieval North Norfolk Manor House

The long, hot Summer of 2018 may be officially drawing to a close, but we’re still working hard to find the best way to preserve the site of Sir Thomas Erpingham’s medieval North Norfolk Manor House for future generations. We learned that drought conditions can very occasionally give rise to unusual crop marks, revealing archaeological secrets of past structures – a good enough reason, we thought, to obtain an updated photographic record of the whole Castle Field – even though grazing land is apparently not as conducive to this type of phenomenon.

Its too early yet to say whether or not our experts can detect anything in the new image which they would not have expected to see … but a great photo nonetheless, and thanks are due to the Project Friend whose paramotor – and skills – were made available at short notice to capitalise on the opportunity provided by the exceptional weather conditions.
